I bought this game when it first came out and never played it. Just today I was doing a component count to make sure it is still complete and one thing is confusing me.

The component list indicates 6 Private Company Certificates. From what I can tell, one of these is actually the president's share of St. Louis San Francisco Railway.

However, the component list also indicates 90 Stock Certificates. This would mean 9 shares for each of the public companies.

Am I correct in thinking that the SLSFR company starts private but may become public and most importantly that the components list is technically incorrect as there is only one tile that is doing double duty?

Or am I missing a piece?

Each company only gets 9 "cards" for their stock since one is 20% and the other eight are 10% each.

This part I got, but there are 10 companies times 9 cards = 90. If one of those is also the 6th private company, they should either list 5 + 90 or 6 + 89 or 5 + 89 + 1.

I'm probably being pedantic, but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't a separate card for the public and private versions of that company.
